Maybe, Just Maybe This Year

 

Maybe, Just Maybe This Year

(C) 2008, Tim Cator

 

Wall Street meets Main Street

Where Main Street crosses over

To the other side of the tracks

 

Where the grass is always greener

But comes with the price of lawn care

For which essentials must be sacrificed

 

Just over the hill is the American dream

While on this side is the dream of America

Where others only wish they could be

 

The white picket fence of contentedness

Is the prison bar of contention

Depending on which side of the hill you stand

 

With little or no money

Maybe, just maybe,

We can celebrate Christmas for a change

 

Maybe this year we can hold someone close

And feel the love that only quality time can bring

Maybe this year’s gift will be a hug every day for a year

 

Maybe this year we’ll listen just a little bit more

To what someone is really saying

Maybe this year’s gift will be understanding every day for a year

 

Maybe this year we’ll ask, “What’d you give?”

Rather than, “What’d you get?”

Maybe this year’s gift will be accountability every day for a year

 

Maybe this year we’ll connect with a stranger

And make a new friend we never knew we had

Maybe this year’s gift will be a relationship every day for a year

 

Maybe this year we’ll make a difference that has real value

And not count the cost

Maybe this year’s gift will be a debt of gratitude every day for a year

 

Maybe this year we’ll make new lists of things that are important

And treat them differently than New Year’s resolutions

Maybe this year’s gift will be meaning what we say every day for a year

 

Maybe this year

With little or no money

Maybe, just maybe

Thought for the day.

When expectations match what we can accept, we can have peace. Peace comes from letting go and giving everything to God. Phil 4:6 It is HIM that works to do His good pleasure (in us, in others, in circumstances) Phil 2:13 #SabbathDaySoulFoodday
